I’m sorry there was some confusion over my last post.  I was not clear at all, so most students did one of two assignments, and so for homework for Wednesday they will simply finish the other one.  So, if students did “Structures and Function of Tissues and Organs”, then they need to complete “Levels of Organization”, or vise versa.

In class we have started a project in which they have been assigned a body system to learn about and then present to the class.  No homework for this yet.
